Autotrax (3752 views - CAE & PCB (Electrical + Electronics) Dict)

AutoTRAX is the name of one of the first ever professional printed circuit board CAD apps available for personal computers. It ran on DOS on an IBM or compatible PC. AutoTRAX was sold widely throughout the world in the mid 1980s and early 1990s until Protel International Pty. Ltd. (the proprietor) ported the app to Windows 3.1 to create the first Windows-based PCB CAD tool, Protel 1.0 for Windows. Since then Protel International became Altium Ltd. after a successful IPO and later on made AutoTRAX a freeware download on their web site. It will run in a DOS window under Windows 9x and Windows NT up to XP. It does not run on Windows Vista and later, but can be run successfully using generic VESA video drivers in a DOS virtual machine.
